|Resource 70: Criteria For Group Performance (Liverpool Hope University)|
Work in this category will be very weak showing an inadequate appreciation of what is required for the assessment. A few aspects of the work might show some degree of attainment but these will be outweighed by work which is inappropriate and/or underprepared.
E Work in this category will show some evidence of understanding of the material, but there will have been insufficient work and examiners will repeatedly be aware of a lack of success.
Work in this category will be competent in some respects but will be significantly flawed in some aspects. Some elements of the presentation will be effective, and the work will display basic skills and understanding.
Work in this category will be sound and mainly competent, showing evidence of adequate understanding, skill and attention. Performances in this range may seem rather pedestrian or mechanical or will show some limitation or incomplete integration. Examiners will be aware that adequate work has been done and may have a sense of limited candidates producing honest and earnest work or able candidates remaining within an easy level of competence. The production will be adequate but without creating effects which have clear artistic value in their own right.
Work in this category will be detailed and impressive but will lack a completely satisfactory artistic integration. The production will show attention to detail, effective use of dramatic techniques and an appropriate style, executed with skill. Many aspects of this work will be admirable but limitation and/or unevenness will be evident, so that examiners will be aware of incomplete success. The performance will be highly creditable but there will be a lack of precision and polish which characterises the higher category.
Work in this category will exhibit a sustained excellence. It will communicate in a genuinely artistic manner, showing an integration of artistic intention, form and content. There will be evidence of attention to detail, coherence of style and control of dramatic techniques. The elements of performance will be appropriate, executed with a high level of skill and will be successfully integrated. The presentation will stand as a piece of theatre in its own terms and examiners will have a sense of theatrical validity and importance that goes beyond the recognition of work done to meet examination requirements.
